During our constructive course, there are clearly certain due diligence required prior pursuing any M&A transactions. How do you measure the success in the M&A transactions? what sort of due diligence required in post M&A deals?
I’ve found that in the middle market, pre-purchase due diligence is very limited. Often times the due diligence is post-acquisition. It changes the integration timelines from what many “experts” say and it is essential. Middle market buyers usually have some big vision of the transaction outcome with very limited specificity on how they will measure it.
